Iran Rejects Trump Demand For Renegotiation Of Nuclear Deal

Calling it " the last chance", Trump said in a White House statement that his country "will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal".
President Donald Trump on Friday said he is extending sanctions relief to Iran under the 2015 nuclear deal, but for the last time.
The US Treasury on Friday announced sanctions on 14 Iranian individuals and entities, including the head of Iran's judiciary, Sadeq Larijani, for human rights abuses and supporting Tehran's ballistic missile programme.
"My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon - not just for 10 years, but forever", Trump said.
Trump has argued behind the scenes that the nuclear deal makes the United States look weak, a senior USA official said.
Trump has previously described the nuclear agreement as "the worst deal ever negotiated", even though Iran has been repeatedly found to be in full compliance. "And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately", he warned. In exchange, economic sanctions on it were lifted.
Trump had come under heavy pressure from European allies to issue the sanctions waiver.

"The nuclear deal is an internationally recognized and concluded pact and is not renegotiable", the Foreign Ministry in Tehran said in a statement Saturday.
This would not entail negotiations with Iran but would be the result of talks with European allies, the official said.
While there may be some relief that Trump has yet to torpedo the hard-won accord, there were clear signs of frustration from European capitals in the runup to the decision. "No one should doubt my word".
In his lengthy statement, Trump said the USA would work with European partners to remove the nuclear deal's so-called "sunset clauses", which allow Iran to gradually resume advanced atomic activity.
The decision had been expected since earlier this week.
In his speech on Friday, the USA president called on all of the country's allies to counter the Islamic Republic's "other malign activities", cut off funding to Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), designate Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement as a "terrorist organization". One aspect of the law that Trump has particularly bristled at is having to give Iran a "thumbs up" every few months by acknowledging that it is meeting its nuclear requirements.
